About Us: Meet Gary and Klista Storts, the faces behind Two Monkeys Vintage Rentals and these beautiful Scandinavian Kata Tipis. Married for more than 30 years, we have two adult sons, a sweet daughter-in-love and a precious granddaughter! Our desire is to help you start the next chapter in your life's adventure with a flair but without breaking the bank!
About Our Name: When choosing our company name, we wanted one that had special meaning for us. The name Two Monkeys Vintage has its roots in a cuddly set of monkeys that Klista's dad bought her mom for Valentine's Day years ago. Periodically, one of them would place the monkeys somewhere in the house as a reminder to the other that they were thinking of them. When her mom passed away after 54 years of marriage to her dad, Klista inherited the monkeys and now, the tradition lives on though Gary and Klista. As Klista travels with her job, Gary sometimes sneaks the monkeys into her suitcase to remind that her that he's thinking of her while she's away. We know, cheesy -- but it's been lots of fun! Our hope for you is that you'll discover a tradition to call your own. It's the little things in life that truly do make a difference!
About Our Business: There are two aspects to our business:
The first is our boutique wedding rental business specializing in romantic vintage, antique furnishings and decor for your wedding and events. As you look through our collections you will see the special care we take while searching for unique and special treasures.
The second part of our business is Scandinavian Kata Tipis. These towering wood and canvas structures embody an earthy vibe that will amaze your guests with a look and feel that simply isn't found with any other event tent. As the only US based importer and distributor of Kata Tipis, we rent and sell them, as well as having set up a tipi venue on our property in Hermitage, TN.
